Back to the Future Part II
Movie Quote Quiz

Biff: Look, Lorraine, you walk out that door and I won't only cut off you, I'll cut off your kids.
Lorraine: You wouldn't!?
Biff: Oh, wouldn't I? First your daughter, Linda. I'll cancel all her credit cards. She can settle her debts with the bank all by herself. Your idiot son, Dave. I'll get his probation revoked. And as for Marty. Well, maybe you liked to have all three of your kids behind bars just like your brother Joey. One big happy jailbird family.

Biff: Go ahead, kid. Jump. A suicide will be nice and neat.
Marty: What if I don't?
Biff: [raising gun] Lead poisoning.
Marty: What about the police, Biff? They're gonna match up the bullet with that gun.
Biff: Kid, I own the police. Besides, they couldn't match up the bullet that killed your old man.
Marty: You son of a...
[Biff pulls back on the gun's hammer.]
Biff: Suppose it's poetic justice. Two McFlys with the same gun.

Biff: Oh! Nice dress, Lorraine. Although, I think you'd look better wearing nothing at all.
Lorraine: Biff, why don't you take a long walk off a short pier?
Biff: Hey listen, Lorraine. Now that I got my car all fixed up I figured I cut you a break and give you the honor of going with the best looking guy in school.
Lorraine: Yeah, well, I'm busy.
Biff: Oh, yeah? Doing what?
Lorraine: Washing my hair.
Biff: Oh, that's about as funny as a screen door on a battleship.
Marty: Screen door on a submarine, you dork.

Marty: Nobody calls me chicken.

Marty: You're not going to believe this. We have to go back to 1955.
Doc: I don't believe it!

Red the Bum: Crazy drunk pedestrians!

Doc: Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads.

Marty: You mean I'm going to see where I live? I'm going to see myself as an old man?
Doc: No, no, no, Marty, that could result in a...[gasps]. Great Scott! Jennifer could conceivably encounter her future self! The consequences of that could be disastrous.
Marty: Doc, what do you mean?
Doc: I foresee two possibilities. One, coming face-to-face with herself 30 years older would put her in shock and she'd simply pass out. Or two, the encounter could create a time paradox, the result of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space-time continuum and destroy the entire universe! Granted, that's a worse-case scenario. The destruction might in fact be very localized, limited to merely our own galaxy.
Marty: Well, that's a relief.

Old Biff: Flying DeLorean? I haven't seen one of those in...30 years.

Marty: [Arriving in 1955.] Oh, this is heavy, Doc. I mean, it's like I was just here yesterday.
Doc: You were here yesterday, Marty.

Data: Hey McFly, you bojo, those boards don't work on water!
Whitey: Unless you've got POWER!

Marty: I don't get it, Doc. I mean, how can all this be happening? It's like we're in Hell or something.
Doc: No, it's Hill Valley. Although I can't imagine Hell being much worse!

Lorraine: Biff Tannen, I wouldn't be your girl even if...even if you had a million dollars.

Doc: The time-traveling is just too dangerous. Better that I devote myself to study the other great mystery of the universe...women!

Old Biff: I have a little something for you. You do want to be rich, don't you?
Young Biff: Oh, yeah. Sure. That's rich. You're gonna make me rich.
Old Biff: You see this book? This book tells the future. It tells the outcome of every major sports event 'til the end of the century. Football, baseball, horse races, boxing. The information in here is worth millions, and I'm giving it to you.
Young Biff: That's very nice. Thank you very much. Now why don't you make like a tree, and get out of here?
Old Biff: It's LEAVE, you idiot!"Make like a tree and leave." You sound like a damn fool when you say it wrong!

Marty: That's right, Doc. November 12,1955.
Doc: Unbelievable, that old Biff could have chosen that particular date. It could mean that that point in time inherently contains some sort of cosmic significance. Almost as if it were the junction point for the entire space-time continuum. On the other hand, it could just be an amazing coincidence.

Doc: No, it can't be. I just sent you back to the future.
Marty: Yeah, oh I know. You did send me back to the future. But I'm back, I'm back from the future.
Doc: Great Scott!

Bishop73

Doc: Marty! What in the name of Sir Isaac H. Newton happened here?

Back to the Future Part II mistake picture

Deliberate mistake: When Old Biff and Young Biff are sitting in Biff's car, the car's rear-view mirror vanishes during all shots of Old and Young Biffs together. Presumably this made the split-screen effect easier to do.

Trivia: The reason that Marty McFly Jr. was arrested was because of stealing an unsubstantiated amount of money from the Hill Valley Payroll Substation.

More trivia for Back to the Future Part II

Question: Doc Brown strongly believes that nobody should ever find out about their own future. With such a strong conviction, why would Doc tell Marty that his children going to prison is the one event that would ruin the whole McFly family?

Answer: At the end of the first film, Doc says, "what the hell" in response to the letter Marty gave him. So this shows it is not that strong a conviction, especially in the face of definite knowledge about something bad happening. It is also a way for Doc to repay Marty.

MasterOfAll

Answer: Doc advises Marty to not tell him about his future because it may affect his life. It doesn't matter what happens to his kids at all.
